Diversity Festival celebrates diversity in people, music, and arts during the weekend of July 24-27 2015 on Texada Island, B.C. The event is held at the Shingle Beach Campsite and serves as a fundraiser to cover maintenance and development costs associated with Shingle Beach Campsite.
Being one of many free use Forest Recreation Campsites, which is no longer funded through the Ministry of Forests, Shingle Beach Campsite is supported by donations from campsite users and special events. Diversity Festival being the principal contributor of funding that covers the annual maintenance and development costs.
Drawn from both inside and outside the community, artists, composers, bands, performers and participants from across the continent and beyond will converge for a celebration of creative culture.
